To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wanted a simple cd player for my daughters' room so I could play audio books for them to listen to while going to sleep. This works perfectly for that. In addition, it's easily moved from room to room, and it has radio. This is a perfect, no-frills cd-player/radio.
This was a last minute idea to give to our 7-year-old granddaughter at Christmas. When she opened it, she was thrilled. It had a radio and a DVD player. Her dad gave her some old 1980s DVDs that he had. It works just great. And the radio was a popular thing with her. We have intermittent radio access in some of the areas in Idaho, but she is thrilled to be able to tune into the latest music when she can.
The unit seems to be hardy enough to bear up under the use of a young girl. And she has it all figured out about running it and so far has remembered to turn it off.
I was more than pleased with the purchase and appreciated all the input from others who had posted Amazon reviews.
I bought this little portable radio so that my daughter could fall asleep listening to music. She loves it, and I have no problems with it. It seems to work just fine.
About a year later, my second daughter got old enough to need something similar. I foolishly bought another brand that I could get at my local department store. It lasted a few months. Then, I bought another, third brand that I thought I'd prefer because it had Bluetooth capabilities. It worked fine at first, until it got to the point that the Bluetooth was the only thing that worked.
A couple of weeks ago, after spending a frustrating 30 minutes getting my daughter's night-time music going, I logged in to Amazon and ordered another one of these babies.
The first one I bought is still going strong even though my now 8 year old daughter has not been kind to it. The 5 year old loves her new radio, and since it comes in multiple colors, I didn't have to get her one that is identical to her sister's. The absence of Bluetooth capabilities have gone unnoticed.
Please learn from my mistakes. There's not another portable stereo in this price range that matches this quality and durability. Anything else is a waste of your money.
The rating is based primarily on how difficult it was for our 19 month old and our 4 year old sons to destroy this thing. This is a replacement for the previous player that lasted fifteen months of being pulled off a dresser, flung to the ground, being stepped on, and being used in play totally unrelated to music. All the while it played the same 8 or 9 CDs quite well, and with fairly good sound quality. For the price, it is fantastic. The radio also allowed my wife and I to listen to music while cleaning the kids' rooms. It is a wonderful value.
This was perfect for my toddler and infant’s rooms. They each get their own color, which is fun for them. The quality is pretty good for the price, but we’ve never used them at high volumes, so I can’t comment much on sound quality. What is terrific is that at a low sound you don’t hear too much whirring of the cd. We had bought a different brand first and had to turn the volume up too high to drown out that noise. You will still hear the cd stop at the end unless you have it on repeat, but my kids sleep through it. They are also a nice size for kids rooms. We’ve had these for several months and use them every night. So far the’ve held up great.
This our 2nd Jenson. We bought our 1st almost 4 years ago. We considered it a "beater". It spent it's entire life outside in the brutal California desert. Never loved. Dust storms. Just baking and doing it's job without complaining. It always worked great. Good sound. Good bass. We used it exclusively for FM radio when having drinks and floating in the pool. Last year the CD stopped working and the lid wouldn't shut so I duct taped it. It soldiered on without complaints. Always faithful and sturdy. We unboxed our 2nd one today (this one in white cause, you know, the sun). I apologized to it as I was unwrapping it. Just out of the pool, 115 degrees out, drink in hand listening to music.
When my Bose conked out after 16 years' faithful service, I ordered this--in the pink and white to match my room décor--to replace it. I can tell you with confidence that the sound compares favorably with that of a (much more expensive) Bose. An attractively retro-looking radio/CD player that is great- sounding and easy to use!
For my 6 year old granddaughter. More pricey than the black one, but the happiness she felt was worth it. She says she loves to dance to it. I'd be glad if she listened to music or stories when she went to sleep at night rather than look at her I-pad, however, you get what you get. I'm thrilled she plays records and dances to it. The sound is good quality.
I have done a 5 rating on this product and its seller. Love my boom box. I chose the white/red color. Perfect size, sound, tuning, CD feature and easy tuning. My second review as I have had the boom box for a few months now. It still is at a 5 star rating. Hi
I was replacing a portable CD Player that I had used for several years. The CD player kept stopping in mid-song, so I reluctantly decided to replace it. This Jensen met my needs, and it is working beautifully. The sound is wonderful, even better than my old one. I love the radio as well. It is very intuitive and easy to use, so I haven't even looked at the instruction manual. I am very happy with this CD player.
